GAMES NEWS! 21/01/19

whither falafel, The Man From U.N.C.L.E., Puggsy was C.R.A.P.
Matt: Good MORNING Shut Up & Sit Down Shupuppers. That’s my new name for anyone reading the news right now - you can’t do anything about it, I’ve sent the stickers to print. It’s a bright and bracing day in London and I am positively brimming with vigor and vizz - partially because of a chilly morning bike ride, but mostly because of the weekend efforts of everyone involved in Hbomberguy’s charity stream.

Raising almost $350,000 for the UK trans support charity Mermaids - in response to other mainstream funding being cancelled after a campaign of organised spite - this colossal achievement had me grinning all weekend at the sheer joy of what now seems possible. A US Congresswoman dropping in on a Donkey Kong 64 stream is exactly the tenor of madness that I get out of bed for - but the whole event has flicked some sort of switch in my head, and I now feel so much better about reality in general. So if you were involved in that in any way - thank you!

Quinns: Wow! I just spent the weekend making some falafels.
